Island Fin Poke - Franchise Information
Welcome to the Islands - where fresh, original poke bowls are presented in unique Hawaiian and Caribbean style. (No – we’re not confused about the geography, although with 1,197 miles of coastline we figure Florida should at least have honorary membership).
Founders Mark and Paul bring their passion for food and community to aromatic life at Big Kahuna’s – where guests are treated like family, and each dish is inspired by the changing of seasons.
From pole-to-bowl and farm-to-fork, only the freshest fish, produce and ingredients are allowed to enter. (Yep, we check IDs at the door.) Their swift transformation into creative, flavorful, and memorable recipes assures that each visitor will enjoy a dining experience like no other.
Did you just say to yourself “Aw, come on. Treated like family?”
Come visit . . . then you tell us.
More like brothers than friends; Mark and Paul’s relationship is rooted in the Hawaiian culture of ohana. (“The family.”) For them, ohana is a way of life - and when your love of food is this personal, it pretty much means once you dig in, you’re one of us. Yes – you get to claim kinship to the crazy guys in the kitchen with the big knives. (Isn’t family great?!)
- Ridiculously delicious food.
- No passport necessary.
- See you after the next fresh catch.
We make awesome island style bowls!
Did you know you could fit the entire islands of Hawaii into Florida 10x’s over? (Well, if you scrunched them all together and moved them around a lot, at least.)
To avoid all that displacement, Mark & Paul of Island Fin Poke Company decided instead to bring one of the best tastes of the islands here to Winter Springs while still keeping it true to form. By that, we mean drawing on local, sustainable, and seasonal ingredients to create the freshest and most flavorful island-style poke bowls you’ll find this side of Ni’ihau. (And let’s just settle this part now: it’s pronounced “po-kay.” See how easy it is to become an expert?)
Our guests will always find their favorite poke flavors on the menu – including Ahi Tuna, Salmon, and Octopus. After that, it gets even more interesting. The balance of our menu varies depending on the season, our local suppliers – and most importantly, the freshest catch-of-the-day.
Boat-to-bowl, farm-to-fork, always fresh, never frozen. Island Fin Poke Company brings Hawaiian flavor a few thousand miles closer to you with a Caribbean partner, to boot. Naturally great food – it’s our pleasure.
We made the concept simple and delicious. No hoods, no cooking, no complexity. With a couple days we can turn anyone into a restaurateur. We started this in August of 1016 and opened our first location March 20, 2017. We have over 50 years of experience between us and you have access to all of it. We will be with you every step of the way to make you as successful as we can.
We are committed to a growth strategy that is resolute to the long-term success of our franchisees. Dedicated to the highest standards of intelligent investment, we have strategically created small, uncluttered yet cohesive restaurant design. Island Fin locations are carefully engineered to be low investments and range in size from 900 to 1500 square feet. Our small kitchens with limited cooking allow us to allocate a higher percentage of the space to the consumer space, therefore our restaurants are capable of exceptional revenue.
We offer two different types of franchise opportunities. You can choose to own a single unit franchise which allows you to operate your own Island Fin Poke Company in a protected territory of your choice. We also offer area development Franchises for those looking to lock down a larger territory and slowly build a series of Island Fin Poke Company locations/territories.
Island Fin offers a comprehensive training program in order to ensure that each franchise is 100% equipped with the knowledge, skills and expertise to successfully operate their own store. Our multi-phased training includes 17 hours of a classroom setting training and 23 hours of on-the-job training, 8 days of training at your location (to cover training your team) and the first 5 days open in addition to many hours of on-going support at your newly established practice.
You have the chance to get in on a popular and contemporary fast casual dining concept ahead of the curve. This means getting in at a low cost, with an avid consumer base ready to help you reach a rapid return on your investment. Access to our operations manual will eliminate any operating concerns that you may have as well as keep you up to date on all of our best practices.
